smorls is on a distinguished road
Hi all,

I wish to model liquid flow in a micro-channel using Star CCM+.
The liquid will contain solid micro particles approx 40 microns in diameter and it will be pumped into the channel every few seconds.
I was wondering how is best to do this?
Should I use a multi-component liquid or should the particles be injected separately to the liquid?
I have never modelled particle flow before so I am a little confused as to what can be done!

Any help would be fantastic!
